Published On: 29 August 2023By 3.7 min readCategories: OpSuite, Retail, SustainabilityTags: , , ,

In the ever-evolving landscape of retail and food service industries, staying ahead of the curve is essential. One recent innovation that has caught the attention of businesses around the world is the adoption of linerless labels. These innovative labels offer a range of benefits, from cost savings to environmental friendliness, making them a hot topic of discussion. In this blog, we’ll delve into why everyone is talking about linerless labels and explore how you can seamlessly implement them with the help of Avery Berkel scales*.

The Linerless Label Revolution

Before diving into the implementation process, let’s first understand why linerless labels are generating such excitement. Linerless labels are adhesive labels that do not require a backing liner, which is traditionally discarded after labelling. Instead, these labels are pre-cut, making them a more sustainable and efficient option compared to traditional labels.

  1. Cost Savings: Linerless labels eliminate the need for liner disposal and storage, significantly reducing operational costs over time. Moreover, these labels are typically sold in longer rolls, resulting in fewer roll changes and increased productivity.
  2. Environmental Benefits: As businesses increasingly embrace sustainability, linerless labels are a clear winner. With no liner waste, they contribute to reduced landfill waste and a smaller carbon footprint.
  3. Efficiency and Convenience: Linerless labels offer rapid application and simple handling due to their pre-cut design. They also free up space that would otherwise be used for liner storage, leading to more organised workspaces.
  4. Branding and Aesthetics: Linerless labels allow for larger and more intricate designs, enabling businesses to enhance their branding efforts and attract customers’ attention.
